Plums And Grapes

Silver vase with grapes

45Cm X 52Cm, Oil On Canvas Phillip Carrero.


This small painting went to hung in a friend’s mum home.

It was a small cottage with 25 watt lamps to save electricity. The still life was placed near a fireplace between a dozen or so old black and white photographs.


The day we hung it became clear to me what the magic of oil painting really is. The while room lit up with the warm glow emanating/reflecting from the painting.


It is this day that I have no hesitation suggesting an oil painting will add more life, character and warmth than a photo any day.
